  • Have you ever felt like you're treated as an outsider or the black sheep within your family or social circle?
  • Do you frequently feel misunderstood by those around you?
  • Have you developed a habit of acting out or engaging in rebellious behavior, perhaps in response to feeling scapegoated?

Who Is The Scapegoat (or The Rebel)?

In the context of dysfunctional family dynamics, "The Scapegoat," also known as "The Rebel," is the family member who is often blamed for the family's problems.

This role involves being the focus of negative attention, and the scapegoat is frequently held responsible for the family's dysfunction, whether or not it's their fault.

The Scapegoat typically acts out and may engage in behavior that seems to justify the blame.

“I wanted to write to you to tell you how much clarity I have received from your prompts in the journals. I bought the toxic relationship and breakup recovery ones and I will forever recommend them to others.

Thank you so much for the gift you share in the world to help others heal.”

“I am so grateful to you. I was somewhat apprehensive about facing certain things that I knew were there but had been resisting addressing. Your approach in the worksheets made it easier, more structured, and less daunting to confront… I am beginning to understand myself better and striving to be a better partner, coach and psychologist.”

– Rocio
